As you might have noticed, we're a bit obsessed with traveling here at the Observer. We've given you weekend getaways, food centered trips, and hidden road trips. So it was only a matter of time before we got in on the fun here at DC9. Being that we live and breathe Texas music, here are the 12 musi ... More >>
The remaking of SMU basketball with the game's most persistent coach.
I dunno, last Sunday night's finale to HBO's Entourage was a little too tidy for me. Vince finally got the girl. Eric was back with Sloan. Ari was reconciling with Mrs. Ari. Drama's show was a go and even Turtle was a trim, fit millionaire. What the what?! I guess I prefer my bre ... More >>
Since I'm out on vacation next week let me get to this Fourth of July tradition a little early: Happy Birthday, America. Our country turns the ripe old age of 235 on Monday. Between burgers and beers and bikinis, I'll make time this weekend remembering how friggin' fortunate we are to have a ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *There's probably some heart-over-head at work here, but I'm picking Rangers in 7. If Neftali Feliz doesn't blow a save and if the Rangers can avoid letting the Yankees' mystique force a mis ... More >>
Happy Birthday, America. Like tonight's July 5th fireworks show in Dallas, it's better late than never. Right? Our country turned the ripe old age of 234 on Sunday. Between burgers and beers and bikinis, I tried to spend some time remembering how friggin' fortunate we are to ha ... More >>
The old progressives made us dump liquor. The new ones want us to heed their diet demands.Now, you all know I'm the kindhearted, gentle sort, right? That I would never write anything harsh about mindless poseurs ordering dirty martinis or suggest a certain rank dish should be dumped over the offe ... More >>
I'm 44. But I'm about to sound 84. It was a better world when paddling was a part of school. A safer world when "licks" between a teacher and student were punishment rather than perverted pleasure. Hear me out: I'm not condoning the 21 "licks" allegedly applied to the backside of a Lincoln High Scho ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *It hit me this week: More than the Mavs being psychologically gutted from playoff failure or inherently soft or whatever, the thing that has stunted their growth is the regression of Josh Howard. He was o ... More >>
Just because I'm dabbling on 105.3 The Fan doesn't mean I'm going to neglect or be conflicted about my sports media duties. Not at all. In fact, just this morning I was driving the kid to school and listening to "Muse in the News" on 1310 AM The Ticket's Dunham & Miller ... More >>
Okay, not really. But we can dream, right? Because if Pacman Jones did get his own show with The Ticket's informative and entertaining Bob Sturm and Dan McDowell, the corrupt Cowboy returning to practice at Valley Ranch today would mysteriously fall on hard times and ... More >>
Happy Birthday! Our country turns the ripe old age of 232 tomorrow. Between burgers and beers and bikinis, let us not forget how fortunate we are to have a variety of sports and the freedom to choose which ones we love and loathe. In honor of the Fourth of July I started jotting down reasons ... More >>
If the team continues to erode, the coach must go
Eric Dickerson's mentioned somewhere in this item, and in a nice way. Hard to top last week, when we said goodbye to two assholes (Bill Belichick and Bobby Knight) and hello to a hero (Nolan Ryan). Today, however, could be just as delicious as sports climbs atop Capitol Hill. NFL commish Roger Goode ... More >>

If so, you'll be delighted to know something called the Intense Football League is coming to Dallas. Well, actually, like everything else, it's coming to Frisco. I don't know a lot about this little venture, but I'm guessing it's a semi-pro, indoor and X-tremely watered-down version of the old XFL ... More >>
www.bobanddan.com If you see Dan McDowell, left, and Bob Sturm coming, run the other way. Drew Bledsoe didn't; look what happened to him. Fonzie, yer next. According to popularity polls, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and totally illogical thinking, Tony Romo will today be officially named the Dallas ... More >>
